Whenever he gives an interview, I always listen. When he speaks, you know that his statements are coming from a background and experience, which only a few people in Israel have had.
What I like about Meir Dagan the most is that he thinks long-term.
Here he is, at a recent roundtable at Harvard University’s Belfer Center, alongside former Director of the CIA David Petraeus, and current Belfer Center Director Graham Allison. I am also a big fan of David Patreus’s writings.
The issues discussed are: the current peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, the divisions within the Palestinian political parties, the Palestinian diaspora and the divisions within Israel over the peace process. This is in addition to the talks between Iran and the P5+1.
This roundtable is definitely worth watching. Very concise and insightful.
